I just got back from 2 months of backpacking in India.
It was indescribable.
The sights… the insight… It was perfectly difficult.
Everyday I feel grateful.
This trip OPENED MY EYES… and I think you will be able to see that in my images.
I have about 900 hours left of going through images and editing but am anxious to share my images so I will post a couple and there will be many more images to follow.
This woman is amazing. Her style is not limited and I love that. One series is vibrant bold contrasty colors with a crazy subject and the next is a girl on the beach with a soft tone and natural beauty. I love it! It keeps me interested!
I am all fueled up on inspiration and ready to go shoot some of my own stuff.

I couldn’t leave without seeing every single image.
This guy is pretty amazing.

Insightful and Inspirational.
Everyone sees through their own eyes with their own unique perspective.
Determined by where they are from, past experiences, things they have endured, seen, been a part of, culture, upbringing, family, society, things that make them uniquely them. We have to learn to appreciate everyones perspective… even the ones we don’t understand. Then we can truly learn from one another.
I create a lot of photos.
It’s my way of expressing ideas and feelings I have, towards humanity, individuals and myself.
This 2 image series I did is my favorite of all my work… because it took a lot of effort to create but also a lot of thinking. I had a feeling.. and tried to express it visually… and while creating it, it kept evolving… and in the finished product, it started saying more than I ever consciously thought of. I can now read these images multiple different ways and I love that. My own images here have inspired me to not only put deeper meaning into my photos… but to create images that can be read so many different ways… because just like the book of life… we all write and read different stories.
Sally Mann. I love this photographer for many reasons. My favorite of her work is definitely portraits of her children but looking more into her landscapes, I have a strong appreciation for them, and I love how she shoots and process’ them.
Check out these images from Sally Mann’s book Deep South.

I hear people say this one line all the time, it’s even been directed at me before…
” YOU CAN’T RUN AWAY FROM YOUR PROBLEMS”
Well you know what, I think you can.
Because running away, usually implies running towards something else.
The fact is you are running into another experience, running into new lessons, new insights, sometimes even new perspectives on the “things” you were “running away from” to begin with.
And all those sound amazing… so…. why not run away? Worst it can do is give you a new perspective.

I took a few different images from other series i’ve done and kind of created a new one. It’s called. “Pressure on Women” As a woman myself, the pressure put on us is CRAZY making. There is a lot of pressure on men too, and i’ve attempted some shots portraying that as well, but I am a woman and conceptually speaking way more comes to my mind in that direction. The reason these pressures are associated with death in these pieces, is because I wanted to show that, you will die before you achieve “perfection” as a woman. That is, if perfection to you is defined by others. If you are looking for perfection in your looks, or your supposed “role” as are taught by the media….You might as well die, because it isn’t real. They want us to look to them for the answers, but the answers are in each on of us. Perfection is already in each of us from the beginning. Look Inward, not Outward.
This breaks my heart to think about these little girls growing up with this kind of influence and pressure.
I’ve felt it, and i’m sure you have too.
Let’s stop feeding into it and
promote true confidence.
Check out this video. It impacted me.
I sketched this image with a strong idea in mind. After executing it however people took it many different ways. I love that, I love different interpretations of my work. It is so fun for me to hear. My original intention was just to show being unplugged from the business of life. To take a second, without the noise, without the movement, just be still, in silence with yourself. Sometimes if i’m going through something hard, I just unplug from everything else in life and listen to my inner voice.
